Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka, has revealed that there was a conspiracy to annul the 2023 presidential election.

Soyinka who spoke on Channels Television on Wednesday, said: “I am alleging that there was a conspiracy from the very beginning before the election to make sure the elections did not take place or that even if the voting did take place, that everything be reverted to what happened under Babangida.

“When we all just woke up and discovered that even though the results have been calculated, even though the results were in possession of international bodies, including monitoring embassies and so on, even if we had the results directly, it was suddenly annulled.”

He added that to him, “it was no longer a contest between individuals, it was now a contest between the so-called interim political party and democracy.
